He has lived with his mother officially but my brother is known to have lived there, the baby spends most weekends at my mothers
He was first placed in foster care 2 weeks ago
My grandmother has cared for him most weekends - the child's mother picked the parents of her new partner to care for the child as she lied to social services and said they were registered foster carers (they used to be 3 years ago).
My brother wasn't at the meeting and therefore they said the child's mothers had the choice, they didn't check they were registered and the child was place there temporary - however since the meeting on Friday which we all attended they have said Levi is to stay in foster care they are now looking to move him as it has come to light that foster carers aren't registered - we have been told we have to be registered to be the carers.
Thankyou - this is the 2nd question I have with you
Ok we thought there had been a oversight of his rights -
we intend for my brother to write the letter and to confirm we are going to remove the child and place him back in the custody of our family.
As long as we give the notice in writing and allow social services into the property to assess the child is okay are there anyway this could jeopardise us have full custody later
Ok thank you when we go collect the baby on Tuesday how do we ensure we are legally correct, should we take a police officer? what is the correct procedure?
Are there any laws we should quote in the letter or key phases we need to make sure are included?
We are going to see a solicitor in the morning, and also are drafting the letter now.
We are worried that if we go to the offices and hand the letter over - how can we ensure they will acknowledge receipt as we are worried they may ignore the letter (we don't want to waste time with 'signed for' via the post
Should he just hand the letter in get the receipt and go, or wait to discuss the details around collecting his son?
Ok we want the child to be placed at our mums house so how is this letter going to aid that?
Please be clearer when you state 'you doubt the he will be collecting the child' as we do not understand this comment
Thank you that is much clearer thanks again
Hello Clare, I have signed up for this service, does it terminate after one month or do I need to cancel.
I do have another question on the totally different matter
